Update on Ryan – Jul15A

A number of weeks ago, we asked you to pray concerning an important appointment Ryan had with a Johns Hopkins Complex Airway Specialist Doctor. At that appointment, the doctor recommended a series of surgeries to carefully remove the scar that is both blocking Ryan’s airway and causing his vocal chords to not work properly. On Tuesday July 18, Ryan will be having the first of these surgeries. The throat affects the ability to breathe, the ability to speak as well as the ability to swallow, and it’s a delicate balance between all three. The goal of this surgery is to open Ryan’s airway, so that’s it’s easier for him to breathe. It is possible that he may take a step backwards with his voice and swallowing as a result of this surgery. Please pray for the doctors and for Ryan’s safety through the surgery and recovery time.
